About the Author

Steve Hoffmann is the founder of WaterTech Capital, a private investment company that specializes exclusively in consulting and investment opportunities within the water industry. With over twenty-five years of experience in the water industry--as a water rate designer, resource economist, entrepreneur, and investor--Hoffmann has witnessed firsthand the dramatic transition of the water business. He was one of the earliest financiers to recognize the potential of water as an investment theme, and has been a contributing editor to the Water Investment Newsletter for more than fourteen years. Hoffmann is also cofounder and principal architect of the Palisades Water Indexes, which serve as the tracking indexes for several leading water ETFs.


Named a top investment book of the year by the Stock Trader?s Almanac 2010. ?The book. . . might well guide some very satisfactory investments. . . Mr. Hoffmann does an able job of laying out the basics of water scarcity and delivery, and he presents a persuasive case for water's looming importance, rivaling oil as the most important commodity this century. . . A strong current of the investing advice in "Planet Water" is Mr. Hoffmann's contention that water utilities will move toward privatization and away from government management. Private management will make companies concentrate on core competencies to keep efficiencies high; those companies are the ones for investors to pursue.?--Wall Street Journal, 5/27/2009
